Deadline: 12 July 2016
The INNO INDIGO Partnership Programme (IPP) have launched an Indo-European Science and Technology Joint Call for Proposals on Biobased Energy. The projects should be undertaken by a partnership of institutions (“consortium”) designed to produce new knowledge through fundamental, experimental and/or theoretical scientific research.
The aim of the INNO INDIGO Partnership Programme (IPP) is to support high quality research, development and innovation projects involving partners from Europe and India.
Biobased Energy: India and Europe seek to reduce their carbon footprint by increasing their research on sustainable alternative energies. Among these alternative energies, biobased energy is of particular interest for both partners, especially energy produced from biomass and waste, to replace or complement fossil fuels both in the transport sector and in power (and heat) generation.
- From waste to energy
- India – Indian Department of Biotechnology (DBT)
- India – Indian Department of Science and Technology (DST)
